    Overclocking a Palamino core

    Well, i knwo i shoulda bought a barton or tbred core processor when i bought all my new stuff, but i was out of money. SO would some one please tell me the best way to overclock this palamino core Athalon XP 1800+. The heatsinc is already taken care of, i got a aero cool deep impact and it cools really good, and i got good case circulation, and i've got artic silver 5 polysynthetic paste, so could i get some prospects?

    IIRC from Austins posts, the most you'll get out of that chip will probably be around 1.7-1.9Ghz

    The trick you're referring to only applies to "Appalbred" Durons and "Thorton" T'bred's that allows it to enable the disabled cache. That trick does not work with Palominos.

    However, if you were thinking of the wire trick that allows you to mod the multiplier without having to connect the lvl 1 bridges, it can be found here.

    Well, the trick i heard of was a long time ago, when these processors came out and it used a pencil to connect them, but i hope i can get it to anny higher speed.

    The Palomino never did have any sort of disabled cache. Also, the 'use of a pencil to connect them' was in regards to the older Morgan cored Durons and Thunderbirds whereby you could connect the lvl 1 bridges with a pencil, thus allowing you to change the multiplier to any value you wanted.

    If you want to connect the lvl 1 bridges with a Palomino cored Athlon, do a Google search on "Athlon XP unlocking". You'll find numerous guides on how to unlock your CPU so you can change your multiplier.

    yeah, i found the articles i was searching for, but i'm not sure even if my processor is locked. that beeing my motherboard prohibits changing of the fsb. its the v.1 K7S5A, so i only have 2 settings, 133 and 100.

    It's pretty difficult to unlock a palamino - I tried unsuccessfully about 10 times - 1st time I tried a volt mod on the L11 bridges of a Tbred A I suceeded. Also the 1800 Pal is locked and as far as I'm aware no mobo will unlock it.
    Wise old man won't you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze.

    firstly, i own 2 ecs k7s5as as well as my main rig and they are the most solid mobo ive ever used, if you want to clock with them you need hacked bios and the wire trick for cpu for tbred cpus

    for palaminos you need to use something to fill the gaps in the bridges, i rec tipex, it was much easyer with that then when i did with superglue and ive tryed some other things aswell. you also need conductive pain so you can connect the l1 bridges which costs abuot £5

    after youve unlocked the cpu you need to change multi in bios, if hacked bios dont let you then the wire trick *might* if you also have the l1 connected. if you dont or it doesnt work you can select the multi you want from changing the l3/l4 bridges. THG have a chart of which bridges you need open closed for each multi

    irc your heatsink got very bad reviews so dont expect too much, as al;ways dont let your cpu get much over 50c load as it will not be as stable after that and it gets easyer to kill it.
    stock mhz fo ryour cpu is 1.53ghz? you wont get that chip over 1.7ghz tbh so i wouldnt say its worth the effort.

    The two pallys that I unlocked before have 'worn' out. Can't select the full range of multi's any more, only whole numbers (ie. 6, 8, 11, 12, etc... not 6.5, 7.5...). Was pretty lazy filling the pits, so I used crayon (or any other wax substance would do) and connected the dots using a defogger kit. Worked for the first year or so, but now, it's gone a bit kaka.

    You'd easily get about 1.73ghz with a small voltage increase. Thats what I managed on my AGIOA step.

    An old 1700+ palomino of mine does 1.75ghz.

    My 2100+ refuses to even consider >1.8ghz.

    I have a 1600+ in my divX box, that used to run happily as a 2100+ no problem so that would be about 1.7GHz? I really can't remember. I should think though that a 2000+ would be pretty close to it's limit now as the 2200+ was a tbred A.
